    Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Wes Bergmann.

    Wes (@WestonBergmann) is always a standout Challenge Mania guest. He doesn't pull any punches. He tells it how it is. He likes to have a bit of fun at the expense of the guys. We waited until the entire season and 2-Part Reunion were done to bring him back to unpack Total Madness with him. Wes finally sits down with Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to break down his alliance with Bananas, where it started, how Cory was involved, why he decided to go in against him, what went wrong during the elimination and much more!!!

    Ep. 188: Jenny West

    Ep. 188: Jenny West

    Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Total Madness Champion JENNY WEST.

    Jenny West (@JenniferWestOf1) became as famous for his exit from War of the Worlds II as she did her entrance. She entered an imposing, intimidating, physically gifted favorite to win anything and everything. A mysterious Brit from a show called "Survival of the Fittest", it was clear no one wanted a piece of her. That is until Tori Deal took just that. Tori eliminated Jenny in a legendary elimination, Hall Brawl, during a time where even Jenny admits she had checked out emotionally and mentally. Now, a year later, Jenny stands atop The Challenge world as CHAMPION of Total Madness and on her way there she redeemed herself with the Hall Brawl Gods by trouncing Dee in the same fashion that Tori took her down the year before. Jenny makes her Challenge Mania debut to walk Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) through the brutal final, the elimination with Dee, her social game, what we didn't see on the snowy mountain and MORE!

    Kaycee Clark (@ThatStudMuffin) made her Challenge debut this season Total Madness after winning Big Brother Season 20. And in her rookie season on MTV she has made the final in her debut, something that is rare in Challenge history. However on this season, she made the final alongside her two fellow BB20 alumni, Bayleigh and Fessy. Kaycee joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to talk about her football background, Big Brother 20, making the transition to The Challenge, what she knew going in, how the shows compare, how she got to the final and which show you might see her on next!

Best challenge podcast ever

You guys always have the best interviews with the best guests. I appreciate that Scott is so articulate and always does his research. Derrick is one of my all time faves and I love the personality he brings to the show. I also respect the way you guys address current events, human rights, political issues, etc in a way that stands up for what is right and spreads awareness, but also keeps most of the show light and fun. It’s a great escape during stressful times. Love you guys!

Stop asking leading questions

Scott just wants guests to agree with his perspective so he takes ten minutes to ask a question to tell his side.. seriously the worst quality in a host

Challenge

Love the podcast but Derrick ruins it for me. He’s way too hyper and hard to listen to.
